This piece of cake originally came from our favorite place – AllRecipes.
After the unfortunate first red badge in 2girlsandapin history we appointed earlier to the Cheese, Olive, and Buttermilk Herb Bread I felt like I need a palate cleanser! So, I turned to Pinterest gods for something to make and salvage at least some of the ingredients I had to buy for the previous baking experiment. In a serendipitous twist of fate, a recipe that immediately called to me was also from some of our favorite recipe people on the Internet! So, I decided it was time to give the buttermilk a new life in a lemon buttermilk pound cake from AllRecipes.com!
Happy New Year! Oh my, it’s 2013 already. Where did the time go? I think I spent it all pinteresting around like a crazy person, looking for recipes and DIYs. I was lucky enough to prepare a Christmas meal for four this year. Although I would have loved to have had a larger company, cooking for four was a lot easier. And since most of the guest were my family, I really didn’t mind experimenting.
I found this pretty little number that was pinned to our “Food 2 Test Queue“.

The more I looked, the more this peach cobbler spoke to me, and awesomely enough, it came from Rachel Schultz, whose Dijon Maple Syrup Chicken we tested a while back. The sweet tooth gods rumbled in my stomach voicing their opinion. It was decided: peach cobbler was happening!
OK, so the other day I went to Publix and picked up a slice of strawberry cake with cream cheese icing. I’m not a huge fan of cake, but Publix cake is just so darn good that when the mood strikes, that’s the cake I want! Once the significant other came home, he was disappointed that I didn’t bring any Publix bakery delicacies for him (he’s team pie in a cake versus pie debate). Since he’s not a sweets kind of guy, I rarely buy him pastries because I know he won’t eat them. But, now I felt bad…so to remedy the situation, I decided to turn to a tried and true Pinterest find – the mini pineapple upside down cakes. I’ve made this one before, but since I never reviewed it, I figured, why not make a 2girlsandapin post about it! So, here it goes… Read more
